Just got 1996 1.8D in inca blue . No sunroof for £350. Starts every time and its arse seems to love its head but its a awesome car to bomb about in. I used to steal my mums when I was a kid and rag it round the back roads but after 2 years in a ford KA it feels awesome to get back into the seat of a old banging diesel engine and know i get good MPG and a car that just wont say no. Give one up for the 205 one of the only decent things to come out of France only jokin.
I clicked this topic, saw the OP's picture and thought ''Thats my car and my picture'' looked at the user name and realised I joined this forum a while ago, while I had my 205... How I miss her... I didn't realise I was already registered, Whooops
I have a 1990 5dr 205 1.6 carb Auto in white, with optional PAS and electrics pack. It has done only 47K miles from new and has a full Pug main dealer history.
It's my second 205 Auto - I had a red 3 dr a few years ago. I don't gravitate towards the autos necessarily - it's just that they are often well cared for low mileage cars in nice order.
The auto is good to drive. The engine has plenty of guts and the lock up top gear gives relaxed and economical cruising. they are a bit juicy around town - 35-37 mpg is typical but this quickly clears 40 mpg on any kind of decent run.
They are an overlooked model in my view and they make an ideal town car. I like them very much indeed.
hello, i own one of the very few "A" reg 205's left, its got 125k on the clock, firsst registered on the 4th of april 1984 as far as i know one of the very first units to be sold in the uk, it was written off, cat c a few years ago and has been sitting in the garage since, have owned it since nov 2005 and it never gave me any trouble, if it hadnt been for a woman van driver crashing on the side of it...
it is a 1.6 gti and guess what it does bloody handle like a go kart! i have a lot of different cars and not a lot compares! sure to put a smile on anyones face!
